Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Top 100 Guitarists of All Time

depending on the criteria for any kind of "top #" list, they appear to be going for a combo of the most influential and who had the most popular licks...

the granddaddy's always get their due, nowadays one can get the tab and video of any song, something they didn't have back then...all you had was Mel Bay...

1) Bob Weir.

Of course these surveys as wholly subjective. Half the time, they haven't even listened to the musicians play. Word of mouth or records sold.

I'll bet not a one of them ever listened to Frank Zappa. Just go out and get you a copy of 'Hot Rats' and play "Willie the Pimp."

Or Mike McReady or _______________ (fill in the blank).

I doubt a survey of this sort has ever been done where you wouldn't laugh at the list of respondants or at the choices.

What would be YOUR top ten?

Hendrix
Garcia
Zappa
Jorma (acoustic)
Clapton (early)
John McLaughlin
Zappa
Robbie Robertson
Mike McCready
Carlos Santana (early)

Based on whom I have heard enough to have ab opinion and what I happen to like.

Rip it up!

ask me again tomorrow

Never thought he was all that good. AS noted--simply personal opinion. I mean--there are so many--James Gurley comes to mind. It isn't just about the top ten S.F. players.

It isn't about anything more tha one ghost's opinion.
